  Thanks Steve,   Yeah the feeling is incredible.

  I really like that Hall Effect Ignition.

  Thanks Bill. It still needs to be dialed in so it will run slower.

  Glad you were following along Gail. Thanks for the kind words. Yes a successful completion is always a plus.

   Hope you are doing well.


  Yes I am Vince and I know you know the feeling too.  Thanks

  Thanks Tel. Your posts on gear cutting gave me a push to try it for the gears on this.

  Thanks Bob. 

     Thanks Pete, I can hardly wait to here that V-8 running.

      Don, it's about 6 in. long and maybe 4 or 5 in. high. I'll try to get a pic with a size reference soon.
      Yes it is great to see it run.

         Thanks

    Ron

   Thanks Steve.

  Thanks Bob, How's the boiler coming?

  Thanks Jo. Keep at it you will get it., I love your steam engine builds.

    Thank you Dave. It has a sort of growl to it doesn't it? Sort of sounds like miniature Volkswagon dune buggy engine is the closest I can compare it to.
